Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Pay to Play
Several tombs are off limits to tickets buyers who choose to travel independently, read a guidebook and simply buy a ticket at the gate. I wonder how much several "adventure archaeology travel" companies are paying to who knows whom to restrict access, and thus justify the expense of their trips.
It's a dubious practice in a poor country with an economy in tatters. This is Egypt's cultural heritage and should not be sold to the highest bidder.
